The TLC Difference
Our Mission at TLC Dental is to build a long-term relationship between our staff and patients and provide high quality and affordable dental services in a comfortable, trusting, and friendly environment.
We are perfectionists in providing you with the finest care while keeping the tone in our office upbeat and fun– you could say it’s contagious. Haven’t been to a dentist for a long time? No worries! We listen carefully and are here to get you healthy!
When you walk through the door, you are warmly welcomed by name and instantly pampered beyond just dentistry. Here at TLC Dental we treat you like family.
All aspects of your total patient experience are taken into consideration at the utmost degree. We will help you with early diagnosis, treatment planning and even financial planning. We go above and beyond for our patients and care about them like family!
Once you are happy with your plan, we put it into practice through first-class dentistry using modern techniques. Each step of your treatment will be explained and performed by our experienced team.
Along with your hygiene appointment, here at TLC Dental, we will complete a comprehensive exam, which includes a thorough cleaning, periodontal evaluation, digital x-rays, oral cancer screening, intra-oral pictures, fluoride treatment (optional), and a doctor exam. This in-depth assessment allows us to check your smile’s overall foundation and to uncover any issues before they become bigger and expensive problems.
When it comes to our TLC care, our hygiene appointments are far from routine. We approach your dental health with a comprehensive and preventive approach. Why? Because our passion is ensuring that your smile is healthy and beautiful.
Our dental hygienists are known for their gentle touch and will do a thorough job of getting rid of plaque and tartar. That’s not all! We’ll even take the time to explain everything, so you always know what’s going on with your smile. That’s what comprehensive, honest care is all about.
It’s essential to see a dentist every six months to ensure your smile is in tip-top shape. Schedule your hygiene appointment today!
When you get tooth decay, a filling is needed to prevent any further damage. Tooth-colored fillings not only mimic your natural teeth, but they are much more durable than traditional metal fillings.
You can smile proudly without being worried that your fillings will show.
Dentures restore the function and beauty of smiles after tooth loss. Both full and partial dentures drastically improve the ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. They also provide support for the facial muscles, which drastically improve the appearance of the face and smile.
Nightguards protect your teeth from clenching or grinding while you sleep. This often-unrecognized habit can wear down your teeth and may lead to painful TMJ issues or costly dental problems. Our custom-made nightguards are better than over-the-counter products because they are specially designed to protect your teeth, allowing you to sleep peacefully.
A crown is a dental restoration that may be used to protect a tooth when it's at risk for a break, to attach a dental bridge, or to restore a tooth after a root canal. We offer porcelain crowns and porcelain fused to high noble metal crowns to restore the smiles of our guests, for the most aesthetically pleasing results and impressive stability.
Meet The Doctor
Dr. Savithri Raju
Dr. Raju was born in India. She was brought into the country when she was two years old when her parents immigrated to the United States. Her father's vision was always to create a better life for his family and to make sure his children had the opportunity to be educated and self reliant. It was because of her father's aspirations, that Dr. Raju was always driven to do her very best and to be a lifetime learner. She grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where most of her family still resides. She obtained her BA in Biology from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio in 1988. She obtained her dental degree from Ohio State University Dental School in 1992. She is also a member of the American Dental Association, Indiana Dental Association, Issac Knapp District Dental Society, and a member of The Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr Raju is by far the best dentist I have ever had. She is always very kind and gentle. She cares about the patient, not only about their teeth but about them as a person. The hygiene staff and front desk staff is kind but also professional. I tell everyone I know about Dr Raju and TLC Dental, there is no better place to go.
I had a wonderful experience. Everyone was friendly and professional. There was very little wait time. I went over my lunch break and I had plenty of time. I also got right in for an appointment. I was a new patient and I got an appointment with in a few days. We will definitely be using this dentist again.
We’ve been with Dr. Errington over 40 years and after moving to Syracuse IN several years ago, we continue to come to Ft. Wayne and TLC for our dental work. I think that says it all. Good people doing good work!
